Roller Derby

Saturday I was at High Country Sports Arena for the final game of the season for Roller Derby. HCSA is a non-profit organization managed by a volunteer board of directors and run by volunteers from the community. Most of the year it is used by kids for In-Line Hockey and Roller Figure Skating while also hosting Adult In-Door Soccer and Tuolumne County Youth Soccer practices. They recently launched Ladies Roller Derby and the crowds to view the game are increasing. Arriving early we were able to secure seats just behind the front row "VIP seating". When the game got started there were lots of people standing and all the seats were taken. The rules are explained basically there is nothing brutal going on just a little pushing and a lot of strategy. It is a family friendly event, in fact the half-time show was put on by On Stage Dance Studio.

A short video of the game is posted in our brand new MyNews section.
